Tumble dryers have a variety of programmes, from basic timed cycles to specific settings for certain fabrics. Some models even have intelligent sensors to protect your washing.
Tumble Dryer Programmes - Part 1
Before you buy, it’s a good idea to decide which programmes you may need, and which ones are in your price range.
Sensor drying technology detects the size and weight of the laundry load, to make sure the dryer is only on as long as it needs to be. Once you reach your chosen level of dryness, the appliance switches off. You can save energy and money by buying a model with this function, and it also protects your clothes from over-drying shrinkage and damage. Sensor drying is found on both inexpensive and top-of-the-range models, so no matter your budget, you’ll be able to find a model with this feature.
The majority of tumble dryers with sensor drying technology have variations of the following dryness settings you can choose:
- * IRON DRY With the iron dry setting, laundry is left slightly damp to make light work of ironing your garments. The downside is that you need to iron the clothes straight away for maximum effectiveness.
- * HANGER DRY The hanger dry setting is ideal for items like sweatshirts, which don’t require ironing. Any light creases will drop out when your washing is hung up.
- * CUPBOARD DRY This setting ensures your laundry is dry enough to put away as soon as the cycle is complete. It’s worth noting that manufacturers may have different definitions as to what constitutes cupboard dry, so check the model specifications before you buy.
- * EXTRA DRY The extra dry setting means a longer cycle time, to ensure bulky items are completely dry. This setting is for drying items such as bedding and towels.
